My May Dividend Income Summary + Latest buys and sells : $BNS $RY $PWF $VZ...

Hey Personal Financial Freaks! This is my fifth Dividend Income Summary for 2018. 

As you can see on my Passive Income page, only 6 companies chipped in for this month. May is a slow month but, what can I say.  money coming in is... well it's money and it's fine by me!

So although May is a quiet month I still managed to collect 331.93$

The amounts are all in Canadian dollars. 

My Dividends came from:

               Canadian Apartment Properties REIT (CAR.UN) : 5.33$ 

              Vanguard Canadian Short-Term Bond Index ETF (VSB) : 9.44$ 

              Verizon (VZ) : 37.66$ (My dividend number is growing as I have added shares of VZ lately)

             Royal Bank of Canada (RY) : 131.60(My biggest financial position. A keeper.)

             Power Financial (PWF) : 129.90$. (My fourth biggest financial/insurance position. A keeper.)

             Rio Can REIT (REI.UN) : 18.00

My total Dividend paid for 2018 : My total Dividend paid for 2018 :  = 400.06$+354.36$+672.20$+407.62$+331.92$ = 2166. 16$

Latest buys and sells
  • According to my Strategy, whenever the stock market declines I try to buy cheap stocks. I either use cash of sell bonds to do so. During May I purchased shares of Walgreen's Boots Alliance (a first position) $WBA and added to my position in Berkshire Hathaway $BRK.B. Other than that, my portfolio stayed roughly the same.
